IES has created an International Register of EcoTuners (Iroe) to enhance the role of the Ecotuner to act as a facilitator of the relationship with nature and conductor of ecopsychologically oriented activities. The goal of this register is to promote the dissemination of Ecopsychology, the quality of its application in various professional fields and to consolidate a plan for meetings and exchanges between professionals in Ecopsychology.
As an international association, already active since 2006 and which includes professionals from more than 14 countries who have been deeply committed to the dissemination, teaching and application of Ecopsychology, IES has defined the criteria that, from the point of view of its national representatives, define the professional figure of the Ecotuner and its work.
IES functions, in line with current European legislation on unregulated professionalism, as a professional association for the world of Ecopsychology. IES does not claim to be the only association in this field, but rather aims to stimulate interest in an ecopsychologically focussed profession in order to consolidate and define, even in collaboration, the vision and work inspired by Ecopsychology.
The term Ecotuner arose in the context of the first IES convention in 2006 (then it was still EES – European Ecopsychology Society) and defines the figure of the professional of Ecopsychology as defined and recognized by IES. Ecotuner is a registered trademark.
The process of registration includes first becoming an IES accredited member and then applying for registration in the International Ecotuner Register, after having read and accepted the internal rules.
- All those who have acquired the Ecotuner qualification in an IES School or who followed a recognized IES training are treated with immediate recognition.
- Professionals can request to join the register if they already work with Ecopsychology and has received training as well as possess a consolidated knowledge base in the theory and practice of Ecopsychology. These professionals need to fit the requisites required to enter the IES “Professional Register of Ecotuner”.
